2015 Porsche Macan S: Fuel Economy Update for January
February 4, 2015
Someone recently asked me what kind of mileage our 2015 Porsche Macan S gets. I didn't know offhand, but I told them it was probably around 20 mpg or so on a good day. I was close, but not entirely accurate.
Turns out the Macan will only get 20 mpg on a very good day, although its average is getting better with every month. In January, the overall mileage number nudged up to 16.8 mpg overall. Like the previous months, our Macan spent most of its time commuting, so its chance to turn in some more impressive highway numbers was limited.
In the process of trying to squeeze the last few gallons out of our Macan I did get this message on the instrument panel display. It was a bit disappointing since it replaced the "miles to empty" countdown that gave me more specific numbers. For the record, it switches to this warning when you're down to 10 miles of range. It's a pretty common progression in cars these days. I guess the automakers don't want drivers pushing the limits much when it comes to fuel.
